Librarian Bella

I love this Bella. I have a friend who just got her masters in Library Science and she will most likely take over the librarian position in our high school next year. So I love to make cards for her and she loves to send lots of cards to her librarian friends. I was so excited when Emily announced this Bookwormabella, I had to have her right away.

To keep in the librarian theme, I stamped the background on the base card with a Stampin' Up! little alphabet background stamp. Background paper is from SU! too. Then I stamped the library pocket card image from SU! on white card stock then cut it out with a rectangle Spellbinder's Die Template. I love that image and use it tons. I think it looks really cute on this card with the scallop edges. Tied that with SU! stitched grosgrain ribbon then adhered it to the card front. Then for the main image, I colored the Bella with Copic Markers, using single solid colors then going back over the areas for a little shading.

I showed my friend and she loved it! She'll be wanting lots of cards with the Bookabella image and she even wants me to make her a few fun business cards with it too. Now that will be a challenge!

Love that Bella. My friend is a school teacher and that would work for her. It would be perfect for notecards. That would be cute as a business card - Bella on the front and information on the back with a note to turn or an arrow would be cute. Can't wait to see what you do with it. :)

Love it! What color baubles did you use? Are they plastic or glass? What do you adhere them with? thanks!

I have a son who is going to start his masters in Libary Sciences soon. While I cannot use the image of the lady for a card for his BD, I can certainly use the other ideas. Thanks so much.
